Colour tests can be super stressful when you’re trying to achieve something new.
This time around, dappled lighting.
It’s not quite there yet, but I’ll keep at it.

This was a recent commission for my 8 Bit Dreams series.

I’m still doing them, and they’d would probably make an amazing Christmas present for your video game obsessed love one.
While the majority of the ones I’ve done in the past have been from the Nintendo Entertainment System, I have also done commissions of 80’s cartoons like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Heman. There have even been some more recent video games in the mix as well.

You can order your own over here.

Game of Thrones

Posted by campbell August 17th, 2012



This is an illustration titled “Born to Run” I’ve done for the upcoming “More Than You Imagined” exhibition that’s being held at the Bottleneck Gallery. The exhibition is part of a series of great pop culture shows that are helping raise money for some wonderful causes. This exhibition is in aid of the Michael J Fox Foundation. You’ll be able to purchase copies of the work once the exhibition begins.

I chose to illustrate one of my favorite little posses from Game of Thrones, Bran, Hodor, Osha and Rickon fleeing Winterfell together. I love those misfits so much and was super excited about their adventures. But, you know, things don’t always play out the way you think they will.

Picture Book

Posted by campbell May 2nd, 2012


Recently my dear friend Briony Stewart and I have been developing a picture book together. I can’t really talk too much about it yet, but I can’t resist showing some of the work in progress shots of the illustrations.

Over the last few years I’ve done a lot of “seeding” of projects. Planting small ideas here and there and waiting to see if they grow. This is another seed that we’re sending out, hoping it will find fertile ground and take a hold.

All the customs

These are all the custom NES illustrations I did as a part of my 8 Bit Dreams series. There are a lot of them. Some of these I’ve shown before, but others are brand new ladies and gentlemen.

My illustration for an upcoming 8/16 bit video game art zine organised by Jimmy Giegerich.

“Bits in Multiples of 8″

I haven’t worked in black and white for a while. It was super fun to break away from all the line work of my 8 Bit Dreams and try to experiment a bit more just with shapes. I’ve been admiring the works of a bunch of illustrators recently who really seamlessly blend bold shapes with fine line work. I’d love to experiment a bit more with that, as the tension and dynamic it creates is really exciting. My 8 Bit Dreams series, while really fun, was quite limiting in how I could experiment, it was more about refining the one singular way of working than broadening my skills.
Now, the freedom to experiment.
